Don't know much about him... but I'm glad to know the Leafs still send scouts overseas.

He's a late August (19th) birthday, so he is one of the youngest players in the draft.

If this is the same guy I'm thinking of, he's drawn comparisons to Niklas Kronwall..

NVM thinking of someone else.

Hopefully Bergman found a steal. By the sounds of it, Nilsson is relatively unknown.

I think it is. He's been touted as a very hard-hitting defenceman.

Hard-hitting Swedish D-man. He has some offensive-potential

103 overall on the ISS review. Strong writeup there, very physical, his play turned some games in the U 18

Tom Nilsson, D, Mora
Sometimes overlooked when thrown in with Sweden's other impressive defenders, Nilsson can sometimes be the most dangerous weapon they have. Nilsson can flat out hit and he loves to do it. His physical play during the U18 tournament was impressive to say the least and changed the momentum in his team's favor on several occasions. A part from his deceivingly good physical play, Nilsson is fairly well rounded and can be counted on to do what is asked of him. His skating can still improve but overall Nilsson is a player who really thrust himself into the draft discussion with his end of year play.

SEL regular at 17, not a bad pick. Plus he has a mid August birthday which mean he is probably among the youngest in the draft.

A bergy pick is always one to watch closely. He's pulled a rabbit out of a hat before. If anyone finds more info about him, please post.

He absolutely obliterated someone in the U-18 game I watched. I'm trying to find it on Youtube.

I haven't heard/seen much of him, but Bergy is one of the best, so I trust the pick. We're taking kids that don't project for at least 3-4 years down the road.

hopefully he's an offensive defenseman... I trust our scouts so i'm not judging this one until like in 4 years when he'll probably even see the nhl(if he ever does).

Most of our guys are on the younger side of this draft class, which is good, means more developement. Not one 92.

I read that too. Was a ISS riser for May 2011. Sounds like a nice pick.
